Confluence Link working in Create but not in Clone Issue Script

Hi All,   I am using a post-function in the create step of one of my issues that generates a new confluence page and links the page.   There is a link in Jira to confluence,  and a link in confluence to Jira.   

So it works if I use the "Create" issue link from the main Jira page.  But most of the time I need to create these issues from another issue type.   So I call a post-function ->Clones and link issue.    It creates the issue,   generates the wiki page,  there is a link in the confluence page back to jira but Jira does not have a link to the confluence page.

-So I know the script works, because it works from create button

-I know the script is being called when using the "Clone and links" script because the wiki page is created. 

But I don't see how in this script it is creating the link so I am not sure how to fix it.  I have tried adding

checkLink = {link -> true};  in the additional actions section of the clone link,  but no difference.

import com.atlassian.applinks.api.application.confluence.ConfluenceApplicationType
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue

static ApplicationLink getPrimaryConfluenceLink() {
def applicationLinkService = ComponentLocator.getComponent(ApplicationLinkService.class)
final ApplicationLink conflLink = applicationLinkService.getPrimaryApplicationLink(ConfluenceApplicationType.class)

// the issue provided to us in the binding
Issue issue = issue

def confluenceLink = getPrimaryConfluenceLink()
assert confluenceLink // must have a working app link set up

def authenticatedRequestFactory = confluenceLink.createImpersonatingAuthenticatedRequestFactory()

// write storage format using an XML builder
def writer = new StringWriter()
def xml = new MarkupBuilder(writer)
xml.'ac:structured-macro'('ac:name': "jira") {
'ac:parameter'('ac:name': "key", issue.key)

// retrieve contents of "template page"
def confResponse = null

.createRequest(Request.MethodType.GET, "rest/api/content?type=page&title=fm00876_IndependentDesignReviewRecord&")
.addHeader("Content-Type", "application/json")
new ResponseHandler<Response>()
void handle(Response response) throws ResponseException {
confResponse = new JsonSlurper().parseText(response.getResponseBodyAsString())

// set the page title - this should be unique in the space or page creation will fail
def pageTitle = issue.key + " Independent Design Review"

def params = [
type : "page",
title: pageTitle,
space: [
key: "TES" // set the space key - or calculate it from the project or something
body : [
storage: [
value : writer.toString() +[0],

.createRequest(Request.MethodType.POST, "rest/api/content")
.addHeader("Content-Type", "application/json")
.setRequestBody(new JsonBuilder(params).toString())
.execute(new ResponseHandler<Response>() {
void handle(Response response) throws ResponseException {
if (response.statusCode != HttpURLConnection.HTTP_OK) {
throw new Exception(response.getResponseBodyAsString())
} else {
def webUrl = new JsonSlurper().parseText(response.responseBodyAsString)["_links"]["webui"]

Hi Otoole,


Did you get a solution for the above problem.




No I have not found an answer

I did a workaround to add another transition to call this script to "start" an issue.  Only purpose of that transition is to run this script.

So the script operates correctly when called from "Create" step started from web page.

Script does not work when issue "Create" called from the link and clone script.
